Deontay Wilder has warned Tyson Fury he will be knocked out in “devastating fashion” during their rematch next year.

On the back of a crushing knockout of Dominic Breazeale in May, Wilder has confirmed clashes with Luis Ortiz and Tyson Fury.

“We move onto [Luis] Ortiz first and, after I whup Ortiz in a great fashion and a quicker fashion, I will come back and get old Tyson Fury, and knock him out in dynamic fashion,” Wilder told Sky Sports.

The WBC champion also spoke to talkSPORT where he revealed Fury’s family fears.

“His family don’t want him to fight me again and I understand, they shouldn’t,” he said. “Because I am the hardest puncher in probably the history, period. Second time the bell rings, I’m going to knock him out, but even faster.

“He’s not getting up this time, I promise you. When I hit Tyson Fury he had a concussion. He didn’t know how he got up. He didn’t know how he got dropped or how he got up – that’s a sign of a concussion.”
